D&C 64:32-33 -- On Becoming Great

"But all things must come to pass in their time.
Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great."
Doctrine and Covenants 64:32-33

Even though we can't always see it, these verses remind us that the little good things that we do every day add up into a gigantic good to the world.  Sometimes we look at our lives and it doesn't seem like we are accomplishing a lot, or making a difference.  But as long as we are doing as God asks, even the tiniest things matter.  We're building God's kingdom, and even if it is a couple of inches at a time, what we are building will never fall, and God will see it through to the end on his timeline.  And those things matter to our lives too.  They make us better, and they impact the people around us.  If we are practicing setting a good example, the day that someone observes us, it will make a difference.  And so it is with everything good.  They are small, but the impact is huge.
Today, let's remember the little things.  Prayer, scripture study, kindness, generosity, etc.  Let's remember that the good things we do for God and for others make a big difference when spread over a lifetime.  Let's keep doing the small things so that we can become great. :)
